An Oregon man is awaiting a grand jury investigation after he was arrested on auto theft charges while wearing a T-shirt reading, "Warning: I Do Dumb Things."

Roshawn Josiah Garrett, 23, whose last known address was in Portland, fled in a stolen car Wednesday night in the Portland suburb of Gladstone, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office said.

After a high-speed chase, he ditched the car and fled on foot in the High Rocks Park area, where a police dog named Nero sniffed him out hiding in a bush, it said.

Garrett was charged with two counts of attempting to elude law enforcement, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and possession of a stolen vehicle. A grand jury will review his case, the sheriff's office said.

In a photo made available by the sheriff's office, Garrett was wearing the black T-shirt — which court records indicate was probably accurate. Oregon corrections records show that Garrett — sometimes under aliases including Bishop Demke — has a long history of arrests and at least one conviction dating to 2011 on similar vehicle charges.
